I am looking for shared experiences on chemo for a ER-/PR+ /HER2- BC. I have recently started my journey and still have a lot to learn. Because my tumor was a grade 3 (I've had a lumpectomy) drs are recommending chemo and are giving me a choice of either a dense dose of CMF or TC. Let me know if there is anyone out there with the same markers and what treatment did you have.

Thanks you so much

Hi Pararap,

I had a very similar diagnosis....very mildly PR+ tumor. I had a Mastectomy. While my posterior margin was close..... I refused chemo, frankly, because I did not feel it was the "right" choice for me. I will be 3 years out this month. Wishing you the best possible outcome.

Dx 12/13/2011, IDC, Left, 1cm, Stage IA, Grade 1, 0/3 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- Surgery 2/2/2012 Mastectomy: Left Surgery 4/16/2016 Mastectomy: Right Dx 4/20/2016, IDC, Right, 1cm, Stage IB, Grade 3, 0/2 nodes, ER-/PR+, HER2-

Hi Ladies- thank you for responding. I couldn't find my away around the site and missed your posts until now!

i started CMF but engaged in a conversation with a 3rd oncologist and he's telling me that CMF is not the right chemo for me but i should be doing AC+T instead so now i am SO confused.

my tumor was a grade 3 with Lymphatic Vascular Invasion.

Let me know if there is any advice or similar experiences
